So who y'all rooting for?

I suppose out of the favorites, I like France - not at all because I'm some francophile or something, I just like some of their players and how they play.

Sentimental favorite is the Scots. That would be cool if they could advance. I don't know enough about them but saw some analysis that they have a good manager and are playing well.

you have to play for 7pts minimum right?

well in THAT group i think 5 will be magic number.

Obviously 9 is max ( 3pts for win x 3 wins ) . So that would be 2 wins and 1 tie. I think 5 pts will be enough to advance in second place. That would be Win and 2 Ties. But then that would mean if another has same, head to head, then goal differential.

So many different scenarios which will make it really interesting how they approach each match. ONE of the big 3 matches will be a brawl. Because i think the winner of France/Germany will have leg up since they will still have Hungary to play.

5 could do it, but i'm saying as a strategy i think you have to play for 2 wins
too much volatility otherwise

yes i think thats how the big 3 approach...meaning at least TWO matches in that group are knockout stage matches. Win or go home.

Get your fantasy lineups in - Euros start today with the Azzurri hosting Turkey in Rome. Don’t sleep on Turkey, they have some good players. But many think Italy is a sneaky candidate to upset the French and win the tournament.

Here’s the lineup for tomorrow:

Full TV schedule here. Nice to see ESPN/ESPN2 and ABC - more coverage than if it were ESPN3 or stream only ESPN +
